African Woman Mpingo Sculpture

Swahili Modern


  • Proud and graceful, these solid mpingo sculptures pay homage to African women through the medium of Mozambican wood carving.

    Each sculpture is carved from mpingo, also known as African blackwood, and uses rough outer bark to provide the illusion of draped fabric. The remaining mpingo is smooth and highly polished. Each woman's face features traditional, hand-carved expressions.

    Measures 4"L X 2.5"W X 15.5"T. Due to the handcrafted nature of this item, slight variation may occur. 

  • GreenArte is a talented and diverse pool of Mozambican wood carvers who specialize in creating figures, boxes, dishes and jewelry from sustainably sourced mpingo, sandalwood, pau ferro and cimbirre. Their focus is on using environmentally-sound materials and furthering artistic advancement in Mozambique.
